Reading Olympics is a reading celebrationavailable for students in 4th and 5th grade. Chester County Reading Olympics is a countywide reading event that encourages students to increase the quality and quantity of books they read for enjoyment. The Reading Olympics Program is based upon the belief that good reading habits form the foundation for a productive and successful life.

Students formed teams to read 45 books to prepare for the culminating event.  The teams come together in the spring at an assigned Chester County school location to answer questions about the books. The teams accumulate points for every correct answer during three rounds of questioning earning each team member a blue, red, or white ribbon based on the number of points their team has earned. Volunteers from area schools serve as moderators and scorekeepers to ask questions and keep score.  More info about the program at
